Paul Garmirian PPG Gourmet Series

    Characteristics A mellow yet spicy smoke, as the result of cedar aging and a shade-grown Connecticut wrapper. Insider's Tip There are 20 different shapes in this popular offering, ranging from a 9 x 50 Celebration to a 3½ x 43 Bombones, but our favorite is the 5½ x 42 Corona, which makes a perfect cocktail cigar (assuming you can find a cocktail lounge where you’re still allowed to smoke). For a noticeably stronger cigar, try the Gourmet Series II. Note Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes.
